Outdoor kitchen with deck and pergola

A new deck, outdoor kitchen, updated pergola roof and lighting made this outdoor entertaining area ready for summer barbecues.





The project


I built a low-level deck across the entire pergola area over the existing pavers. I made a removable cover for each floor drain so it can be easily checked and cleaned.


Upgraded the pergola roof with better heat-resistant sheets. It's now much more comfortable during a hot summer day. I also upgraded the lighting and installed a ceiling fan.




I built a half-wall and cabinets for the outdoor kitchen. I did all the plumbing work, including both hot and cold water pipes and a drain pipe that connects to the existing kitchen drain.

This kitchen is gorgeous Raymao268!  Are they Kaboodle cabinets?  If so, was the BBQ cupboard a custom design?

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @racdean. It's sensational to have you join us, and many thanks for jumping into the discussion.


Let me mention @raymao268, so they are alerted to your question. 


There is the possibility that the kitchen was from Kaboodle as they offer a range of products that are suitable for undercover alfresco kitchens. They have a range of J-Pull cabinet doors that look quite similar. Here's a helpful guide on what to consider. There is also a great modular range from Alfrescoplus to make building an outdoor kitchen super simple.


We look forward to hearing more about your outdoor kitchen project and encourage you to let us know if you have something to share with the community or need any assistance.

@racdean These cupboards were custom made by Timberland Joinery. All out of PVC boards for outdoor conditions.
